Cris is a great believer in self-care, self-love and self-compassion. She believes that we all should be mindful about our needs for healing everyday whether physically, emotionally or mentally. As Cris says “we need a connection to others and when we practice self-care and self-compassion, we create a greater connection to our own self. When our body is healthy, free from pain and of calm mind we can then contribute to our wellbeing and healthier relationships with our family, friends, and community.” Her own healing journey along with the support of others, led her to find her passion teaching Yoga, as well as practicing Thai Yoga Massage and Reiki. Including her exceptional way of facilitating Drumming Circle and Healing Dance. She finds joy and healing in her offerings through the positive and often profound connection and energy exchange between herself and her clients. Cris truly cares about others and her practice is mainly base on the foundational principle of “Metta Bhavana” – loving kindness or compassion. She always invites her clients to receive her treatments with an open heart and open mind, facilitating the healing process to occur naturally with compassion and trust.
Vanessa loves encouraging your hopes, daydreams & wishes into your reality, through gentle bodywork, energy work, essential oil plant wisdom, and other holistic practices. She is energized by empowering you to live from a place of consistent health and joy!
Vanessa came into conscious health practices as a youth. Vanessa seemed to be more sensitive to everything (think Princess and the Pea with her surroundings, other people and her body). As it turned out this allowed for even more exploration and growth in healing and health. Her formal training began in 2005 with Reiki certification. Vanessa’s innate access to awareness continues to develop through practice and ongoing continuing education. Her most recent learning includes the therapeutic use of essential oils (including the gentle body touch application of these oils in AromaTouch Technique).
A very important aspect of how Vanessa is able to now support others to their health and joy is through her experience and personal healing journey. She offers you what she knows from a full & overflowing cup/wellspring.
